Cultured Freshwater Pearls are farmed in China in brackish water along the coastline. They are produced using freshwater mussels, which can produce up to 25 pearls inside a single shell!
These beads are upbeat, eye-catching, and absolutely one of a kind! The camera doesn't quite capture how iridescent these freshwater pearls are in person, they have a golden shimmer that dances in the light and with every movement; these fun beads would be great for kids projects, or for a little pop of color to your necklace or bracelet designs!
Freshwater Pearls, in ancient folklore, were once thought to be the tears of gods and goddesses; in China they were rumored to be from Dragons; and it is believed that the Queen of Sheba would have pearls ground into her drinks to prevent poisoning.
